Chef Teddy Klopf plans to open Provenance on Feb. 22 in downtown Raleigh.

The 2,600-square-foot restaurant is located on the first floor of the new Skyhouse luxury apartment building on East Martin Street. The restaurant will seat 80 people inside and an additional 50 when they open the patio in warm weather.

Klopf describes Provenance as a restaurant offering “refined new Southern cuisine in a contemporary, casual setting.” He said the menu will be be “hyper-local, hyper-seasonal.”

All breakfast items will cost $10 and feature a quick morning meal. Weekend brunch prices will range from $12-16 and be a more leisurely affair. The weekday lunch menu will be $9-$18. Dinner will include small plates for $5, shareable dishes for $9-$15 and entrees from $19-$32. About 85 percent of the liquor on the bar menu will be sourced from North Carolina and the wine list will feature domestic offerings, Klopf said.

Eventually on Friday and Saturday evenings, Klopf will offer a prix fixe dinner series that allows him and his staff to explore different cultures and cuisines. Upcoming menus include a “Don Quixote” highlighting Spanish food and wine and a menu inspired by an imperial Rome cookbook featuring Greek, Roman and Sicilian wines.

The restaurant will be open for breakfast from 7 a.m.-11 a.m. Monday-Friday, for brunch from 7 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday-Sunday and for lunch 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday-Friday. The bar is open 3-11 p.m. Monday-Saturday and the full dinner menu is available starting at 5:30 p.m. Monday-Saturday.

Klopf previously worked at McCrady’s in Charleston, S.C., and The Umstead Hotel and Spa in Cary.
